Medical malpractice is a serious issue that can have devastating consequences for patients and their families. It occurs when a healthcare provider fails to provide a standard level of care, leading to injury or harm to the patient.

If you or a loved one has been a victim of medical malpractice, it's essential to seek legal help from experienced Harrisonburg medical malpractice attorneys who can fight for your rights and hold those responsible accountable. This is where the Obenshain Law Group comes in.

Understanding Medical Malpractice in Virginia

Medical malpractice refers to the negligence or misconduct of healthcare professionals, including doctors, nurses, surgeons, pharmacists, and other medical practitioners, that results in harm to a patient.

In the state of Virginia, medical malpractice occurs when the standard of care provided by a healthcare provider falls below what is considered reasonable, leading to injuries or adverse outcomes. To prove medical malpractice in our state, you must establish that the healthcare professional had a duty of care towards you, they breached that duty by failing to meet the standard of care, and this breach directly caused your injury.

If you've suffered due to medical malpractice, it's important to have experienced legal representation on your side.
